    COMING SOON, NEW ON-SITE ACCOMODATIONS AND FISHING STAGE RENOVATION! 

    In early 2018 we added a twelve unit building on-site that is fully furnished with 10 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a kitchen, and a laundry room. We plan to have these units fully operational by August 1st, 2018.

    Also we have recently purchased a 110 year old fishing stage in English Harbor East, Fortune Bay, NL. Our goal is to completely renovate this building by the end of 2018, and ultimately make this space available for our workers/guests. If you are interested in a remote retreat and/or helping near the ocean we could use your help!

    Working with the owner/manager you will assist with the following key projects:

    #1 Irrigation pond and land drainage project:
    • Help design irrigation pond: install pond liner and lay our 150 metres underground piping and valve network to supply greenhouse facility.

    #2 Honeybee indoor overwintering storage room
    •help construct a 200 square metre indoor overwintering room climatically controlled at 5 degrees Celsius for storage of honeybee nucleus colonies.

    #3 Indoor Crop Drying Room (garlic, onion, leek and quinoa)

    • Help construct a 300 square metre crop drying room.

    4) help prepare new ground for small fruit /berry upick operation
